Top 10 most inspiring quotes by Jane Austen

- In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.
- I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal.
- The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!
- It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

Jane Austen (1775-1817) was an English novelist known for her witty and insightful portrayals of the social life and relationships of the British gentry in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. She was born on December 16, 1775, in Steventon, Hampshire, England, to a family of modest means. Austen was the seventh of eight children and had a close-knit relationship with her family.
As a young girl, Austen displayed a keen interest in literature and began writing at an early age. Her works were often satirical, focusing on the manners, customs, and values of the society in which she lived. Austen’s novels are known for their detailed observations of human nature, sharp social commentary, and intricate plots.
Austen’s major novels include “Sense and Sensibility” (1811), “Pride and Prejudice” (1813), “Mansfield Park” (1814), “Emma” (1815), “Northanger Abbey” (1818, posthumously published), and “Persuasion” (1818, posthumously published). Her works were initially published anonymously, and she achieved only moderate success during her lifetime.
Despite facing limitations as a woman in a male-dominated society, Austen’s novels gained popularity and critical acclaim after her death. Her novels continue to be widely read and admired for their timeless themes, well-drawn characters, and astute observations on social class, marriage, and morality. Austen’s writing style, characterized by irony, wit, and subtle humor, has had a lasting influence on the literary world.
Jane Austen passed away on July 18, 1817, at the age of 41, in Winchester, Hampshire, England. Though her literary career was relatively short, she left a significant impact on English literature, and her works are regarded as classics of the genre.
